Results Count 2008

Atlanta Women in Business announced the recipient of its fifth annual Results Count award on November 14, and recognized her accomplishments with a celebratory luncheon in Sandy Springs. "And the winner is . . . " - Peggy Parks of The Parks Image Group.
Actually, the Results Count awards do not have "winners"; they have "recipients". I think it is especially for women in the business world important not to talk about "winners", because the immediate connection is that for every "winner" there is at least one "loser". As women in the business world, we cannot afford to have losers. There are too few of us in leadership positions, too few in the C ranks, and too many earning 70-some cents for every dollar a man in the same position earns. So, in the Results Count award system there are only winners - and every year there is a recipient!

We've Got Authors!

The leadership of Atlanta Women in Business decided a few months ago that it should support the publication of a co-authored book. About a dozen members came forward and expressed an interest. In the end, six stalwarts are carrying the project forward, under the leadership of Angela Durden (center). The other authors are, from left, Marla Brown, Barbara Giamanco, Eleanor Morgan and Peggy Parks. Not in the picture, but equally enthusiastic and committed: Sue Lawrence.
